There’s a couple of neat history lessons in this beer. For a start, it is hopped with Cluster, the earliest US hop variety, which also found its way into some British beers in the years before World War I. Secondly, it is based on the kind of lagers produced by the many small US breweries that were active before Prohibition (though many never came back afterwards). That’s enough lessons though, beer school’s out and it is time to pour a beer. Straw-gold in colour, it has a subtle nose of sweet grainy malt and slight grapefruit, while each swig (oh yes this is definitely a beer for swigging) reveals a clean and refreshing thirst-quenching combination of gentle citrus notes, a subtle bitterness and a finish that embraces dryness as it was a long-lost love. Treat yourself to several pints of history and make sure you do your homework.
Hops: Cluster, Nugget
Food pairing: It’s got to be classic American street food, so maybe a luscious and juicy burger with a gooey slice of cheese and fries on the side. Or you might want to go slightly upmarket and try it with a New England chowder, with the crispness of the beer cutting through the creaminess of the chowder.

I love everything that Frome Brewery does and I've been buying since the start of lockdown. Everything never fails to impress me and the Pre Prohibition Lager is no exception. It's pretty light and at 4.8% it can be used as a session beer. It's slightly malty with some corn taste but only very slightly. Buy some. Drink it.
A cut from the normal, very tasty.
So nice to have a larger that is not overly fizzy and chemical tasting - this is refreshing with a brilliant taste
A really nice clean and refreshing lager, as well as fantastic service from the Frome Brewing Co
